This year, our Vacation Bible School (VBS) students and their churches were a part of an amazing project—raising money to provide meals for hungry children living in needy areas. The project was a huge success! We are excited to announce that more than 500,000 meals were provided by VBS students and churches! What’s more, very important gospel tracts were distributed with each meal! This means that through this outreach, kids who may have never heard about Christ will see a wonderful example of Christ’s love and then learn about His offer of salvation. My brother, Steve, wrote a blog post for Answers Worldwide about this amazing outreach:
With the help of the eager 2014 Vacation Bible School (VBS) students, more than 500,000 meals and more than 900,000 gospel tracts have been provided to children around the world. It is truly our hope at Answers in Genesis to provide real and tangible help and gospel hope to every human in need.You can learn more about the exciting results of the VBS mission project by reading the rest of the blog post.
Each year, the AiG VBS curriculum includes an important missions moment, and for our 2014 International Spy Academy VBS mission project, we partnered with Children’s Hunger Fund (CHF) to raise money to feed hungry children around the world. The VBS children were encouraged to put their faith into action by raising funds so that those who have very, very little would be able to have a nutritious meal—a meal that costs only 25 cents! This means that one dollar will feed four children. We also encouraged churches to take up offerings for CHF. Many of the churches that used our VBS jumped on board and we are excited about the results of this endeavor!
